Eye cream should be an important part of everyone’s beauty routine. It acts as a saviour for people dealing with under-eye issues, dark circles, puffiness, and more. However, you should know that only the right method of product application can help you get the maximum benefits out of your eye cream. To get the most out of this skincare essential it’s important to fix some common mistakes most people make when applying the product.

1. Don’t Use Too Much

The under-eye area is relatively small, so you don’t need too much product. Plus, most plant-based eye creams come at a higher price point compared to other skincare products, which means you don’t want to waste them. To get the most value for your buck, use only a pea-sized amount for each application. This will make the eye cream last longer and cover your entire under-eye area for the best results.

2. Applying Eye Creams in the Wrong Way

The order of applying skincare products matters a lot since it affects their absorption into the skin and the overall results. It’s best to check the instructions on the product packaging that’ll tell you more about using the cream with other skincare products. The general rule is to apply the cream in small dots around the eye and blend it gently with your fingers.  

3. Using It Too Close To The Eyes 

The skin under your eyes is one of the most delicate areas and needs gentle care. You should know that under-eye creams are not intended to be used on your entire eye area. Using the product on the skin too close to the eye will do more harm and further lead to irritation and dark circles.

The skin around the eye is extra prone to dryness and damage since it has fewer sebaceous glands. You should use eye cream on a slightly wet face. When your skin is slightly wet its permeability increases which allows better absorption of the ingredients present in the eye cream.

5. Rubbing The Cream Harshly 

The area around the eyes is delicate so it needs extra care, so rubbing of the eyes may rupture the delicate blood vessels, which ultimately increases the risk of dark circles, puffy eyes, and fine lines. Your ring finger has the softest touch as compared to other fingers. Hence, it is advised that eye cream should be applied gently using your ring finger.
